Lesson 2.1 Key Terms

TermDefinitionExample
Distributive Property Full name: distributive property of multiplication over addition. The property that allows us to distribute ("multiply through") an AND across several OR functions. For example, a(b+c)=ab+ac. I used the distributive property to correctly multiply.
Least Significant Bit (LSB) The rightmost bit of a binary number. This bit has the number's smallest positional multiplier. In 10111, the least significant bit is the far right 1.
Logic Circuit Any circuit that behaves according to a set of logic rules. A 74LS02 is a logic gate that can be used in the circuit.
Logic Diagram A diagram, similar to a schematic, showing the connection of logic gates. We use the logic diagram to correctly place the wires for the circuit to work.
Maxterm A sum term in a Boolean expression where all possible variables appear once in true or complement form. The maxterm is when all variables are 1
Minterm A product term in a Boolean expression where all possible variables appear once in true or complement form. The minterm is when all variables are 0
Most Significant Bit (MSB) (MSB) The leftmost bit in a binary number. This bit has the number's largest positional multiplier. For example in the binary number 0111, the most significant bit is 0.
Product-of-Sums (POS) A type of Boolean expression where several sum terms are multiplied (AND'ed) together. 1*0=0
Product Term A term in a Boolean expression where one or more true or complement variables are AND'ed. A 1 = 1 that is product term
Sum-of-Products (SOP) A type of Boolean expression where several product terms are summed (OR'ed) together. A whole circuit would hold a sum of products.
Sum Term A term in a Boolean expression where one or more true or complement variables are OR'ed. A 1 would = a 0 and that would be the sum term
Truth Table A list of all possible input values to a digital circuit, listed in ascending binary order, and the output response for each input combination. In a truth table with three variables there will be nine outputs
DeMorgan's Theorems 1) Theorem stating that the complement of a sum (OR operation) equals the product (AND operation) of the complements, and 2) Theorem stating that the complement of a product (AND operation) equals the sum (OR operation) of the complements. I used the DeMorgan theorem to make my circuit with AND and Or gates

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
